Great game and educational as well. Sometimes the simple approach is best. When designers did not have the modern computer technology that is available today (2016), it appears that they were very creative. Just look at the variety of games on this site. The same was true in Engineering. Look at the computer tools that the Apollo moon missions had. I worked on the US FBM Submarine Navigation Subsystem and it was incredible what was achieved with relatively rudimentary computer devices. Today's games appear to be more of the same-violent shoot 'em up.
Sure, graphics are fantastic but there is something missing. One exception is the sports games. I hear they are very good. My son loves Madden.

If you play google free, it can get surprisingly challenging by the end. Awesome, classic game.

And FWIW, it does save progress for me...

It is as I remembered it, I never owned a computer back in the day, I played it when I was older. Loved it then, love it now.

Subject: Good Except for...
...the fact that it doesn't seem to keep my progress. Even when logged into the site when I enter my "detective" name it tells me that there's no record of it...

How sad...

And I have so many wonderful memories of playing this game when I was is grammar school...
